  1. Thank you chris for your kind words and My door has always been open and I can agree with you . At times the passion seems to override how one evaluates the process at hand to a point that we all lose our direction and the commonality . It is much easier to give a hug once in the while rather then constant ways to cause disagreements. I give and take hugs fairly easy as most here will tell you . I often ask myself How can one be so right and yet so wrong all in the same process. How is the fishing in N Carolina a Place I have often thought about fishing, but never made the trip . Its just a dream away however.
  2. looking at those fish and how they appear, one wonders why any one would want to purchase them in such bad quality in the first place. This is a typical case of stacking fish, with not measures to keep them from spoiling and the lack of enforcement to give out a real good message that this should be treated as a violation of the environment and have different regulations to punish such types of poaching from occurring.
  3. This fare is an introductory fee which is bound to increase before to long, if the ridership remains constant
  4. from another time brings me to a point upon where I post this / We had a discussion recently about the Lepers a group of fishermen who fished behind Play land in Bourne many years a go and we received some information from Trout Man about an old picture he had sitting in his collection of some of those who made up the group. Since he was among the group, some here wanted to see some old photos. I received those Photos in the mail today and now will need to find some one willing to get them on this post . The fishermen in the group picture I recognized are Brad[Hawghunter] Pohler Owner /Inventor of Hawghunter lures, Joe Cavenaugh[Joey] [Trout Man] and Bob [Huff] Langley [the one and only one] The ones I do not remember are Richie ,[Derellict} Moore Jim Lydon[Jimmy] and Billy ,[Mr. Canal].Doyon . It is with great anticipation that we get this photo up here so that we can further discuss some of the old times when it meant you fished with some ethics . Along with some old faces here we may get perhaps a better picture of what it meant to be a Leper
  5. My facts are not mixed up at all It was mark who told me the story and that is as vivid today as it was when he told me . Bourne over time has had shell fish stolen like any other town and mark is the one with the vivid imagination that in great detail was spoken when it happened as I recall in another time. You need to speak to him
  6. Bob you might want to go back to post 11 where you were the one that first mentions Bourne and it became part of the discussion and now you have decided that I can not mention Bourne? Which is i? No one is throwing any Mud against any wall and you are right, it was Mark that i had the conversation about how Mark just spread shell fish in a location and that the local tribe made a midnight raid on them and nothing can be done if I recall all of the details correctly. If Mark told me it was Hogs and it was Oysters then My memory is as bad as yours.
  7. Joe I do not know if any one has stated this , but to my knowledge it all came about from a grant from an outside source. It does not reduce the value , however it does reduce the burden on the taxpayers . Many towns are able to obtain grants in some cases to purchase different needs through the year and it is simply a way that town budgets get satisfied. Some one is paying the bill , perhaps some one that is in a financial cash flow or what ever. It happens all the time and all that is needed is some one apply for and fill the paper work out that meets what ever the requirements may be. I have seen even towns like Bourne, Mash bee , Barnstable and Plymouth in the paper often being about a grant that was excepted for one reason or another. Its a matter of finding the grant to fit the purposes the town is looking for.
  8. Rob the water lacks the nutrients to allow the Oysters to sufficiently grow and the first batch they released at the end of last year we had in the creek for almost two years and they were most all shy of the legal 2.5 inch size unfortunately, so they sought and got a special order[from DMF] to spread them before they all died or so I was told. The oysters did not have a whole lot of meat in them from those who harvested and ate them , unlike Barnstable
  9. You and every one looking in know that the town of Bourne is no different then any other town that grows seed from quahogs and Oysters to be raised and spread for the recreational and in some case commercial users . That is the facts of this conversation and if you want to deny that by your own admission that you had any shell fish, no matter if it is quahogs or Oysters removed illegally on your watch, so be it.
  10. Does it really matter it is just a matter of the discussion that this can happen to any town and it does . Even to the Town of Bourne
  11. Then Oysters
  12. Bob then who did you say in the dead of night removed all of the hogs you just spread out on the beds that time, it sure sounded like you were talking about the local tribe to me Perhaps I was incorrect, but that was the topic of the discussion that we were engaged in at the time.
  13. Joe back in post #43 I thought this question was ansered , where I posted that according to the conversation I just had with the dept. That ONe whole row of cages plus two bags were emptied Some from last years stock and some from this years . The size ranged from thumb size to 2.5 inches. No numbers as to how many from each years growing Every town at some point in a growing season has seen shell fish stolen or once they disperse them ,. even in Bourne it happened. At least that was what Bob G told me about bandits stealing hogs after he raised and dispersed them . He put them on beds during the daylight and they vanished during the night, some thing to do with native American rights . Then again down cape they seem to have some being stolen between the farmers with grants. Hard to stop , unless one has a strong monitoring policy in place
  14. Kujo experimenting is the only way you will find out for sure . So what ever you decide to use and go to give it a try, for you just may be surprised as many of us were back in another time. It is only by putting in your time will you satisfy your quest and it should be a positive revelation. All of the places you mention are great during some part of the year for various species , you will need to establish that on your own Good Luck and do hook up with Shark Lobster it will reduce your learning curve a tad
  15. Joe he has already indicated other stops along the way once he was up and running from his original proposal . so for me that will happen most likely next year . It is sure to interfere with those who like to fish some places that have become popular. The times is coming when he will be advocating for a fence along the whole route as well to help keep the train on schedule, which was also part of his original presentation to some..
